In 1991, a small group in our community met to share ideas as they were concerned with the growing number of homeless persons and the lack of services in place for this population. This group of individuals became “In from the Cold of the Quad Cities.”
The primary focus of this organization is to raise funds for homeless service providers in the Quad Cities. The group strives to ensure that no person will have to live on the street, in an abandoned car or building, or in any unsafe place. In From the Cold has raised and distributed over $300,000 to local Quad City agencies dedicated to serving the needs of the homeless.
We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon: support, empowerment, and progress. Learn more about our mission, our vision, and how we go about making the changes we want to see.
